Someone is poisoning people with weight loss herbal teas and then there are odd things happening at the Cafe Vlad Tepes (which attracts a very strange clientele indeed) . . . Another delicious recipe for murder, mayhem and mystery in the Corinna Chapman series.

If there's one thing that Corinna Chapman, baker extraordinaire and proprietor of the Earthly Delights Bakery, can't abide, it's people not eating well - particularly when there are delights like her very own, just-baked, freshly buttered sourdough bread to enjoy. So when a strange cult which denies the flesh and eats only famine bread turns up, along with a body which is found in a park, dead of malnutrition, Corinna is very disturbed indeed.

But she doesn't only have that to contend with: her hippie mother, Starshine, has turned up out of the blue, hysterical that Sunlight, Corinna's father, has absconded to Melbourne with all their money and a desire for a new young lover; someone is poisoning people with weight loss herbal teas; and then there are odd things happening at the nearby Cafe Vlad Tepes, which attracts a very strange clientele indeed. Altogether, it's a delicious recipe for murder, mayhem and mystery.

The third in the Corinna Chapman series, Devil's Food is another irresistible, criminally entertaining read from the master crime writer, Kerry Greenwood.

Industry Reviews
"The Chapman novels take the best elements of the author's more popular 1920s-era Phryne Fisher series - strong female protagonist, solid mystery, offbeat humor - and transport them to the present day...Corinna shows every indication of sticking around for a good long time."
Booklist

"A missing father, a bizarre cult and two poisoned shop assistants keep a Melbourne baker on her toes in the latest from Greenwood (Heavenly Pleasures, 2008, etc.)....But like-minded readers will find themselves charmed by the oddball characters and obligatory recipes."
Kirkus Reviews
